I was looking for how to become an Astroman and I found alot of job openings. Most of NASA's work force is old so there should be alot of openings in the comming years. I'd like to be eligible for a job in NASA.

It could be cool to work there. Too bad I wouldn't really be able to do anything at NASA, being an artist and all... unless they need some 3D artists for those computer animations they always do

What kind of degrees would be required to be an astronaut? I dreamed of it and I would love for it to come true. This time you get PAID to go into space instead of people who spent millions of dollars to get into space.

Degree must be followed by at least three years of related, progressively responsible, professional experience. An advanced degree is desirable and may be substituted for part or all of the experience requirement (master's degree = 1 year of experience, doctoral degree = 3 years of experience). Quality of academic preparation is important.
